Workshop 3

Posted in workshops by assistant2008 on October 2, 2008

What Does Feminist Porn Look Like?
(in English)
Audacia Ray, New York

Audacia RayIn the last few years, feminist, independent, queer, and alt pornographies have become a visible and viable part of the adult industry, to the excitement of many porn fans, performers, and producers. But there are still a lot of arguments about whether or not porn can be feminist and ethical, and what exactly that looks like.
In this workshop, we’ll deconstruct the meaning of feminist porn and then try to put it back together again in photos and a video that will be produced during the session. We’ll evaluate some examples of sexual media and discuss whether or not they are feminist, and how to tell whether or not they are ethically produced. Then, we’ll set up a scene with a live model (the workshop leader!) and experiment with shooting in a feminist and ethical way. Will what we make challenge assumptions about feminism and porn? Is it possible to make images by ethical and feminist producers look different than other images?
Participants are encouraged to bring their cameras and come prepared to shoot either stills or video. Amateurs are more than welcome!
Audacia Ray will be serving as both workshop leader and muse for the media produced during the session. She is the editor of Village Voice sexuality blog NakedCity.com, director and producer of the award-winning porn film “The Bi Apple”, author of the book “Naked on the Internet”, and a (mostly) retired model and sex worker.

Anmeldung / Registration & Information via dearhedoluxe@hedoluxe.com

Where Cabaret meets Artschool.
Nach dem großen Erfolg im August kommt Dr. Sketchy zurück nach Berlin.
“Warum kann Zeichnen nicht sexy sein?” fragte sich die New Yorker Illustratorin und Burlesque-Tänzerin Molly Crabapple und gründete 2005 “Dr. Sketchy’s Anti Art School”. Das Prinzip ist ganz einfach: Außergewöhnliche Modelle in aufregenden Kostümen können in gemütlicher Atmosphäre gezeichnet werden, es gibt lustige Zeichenwettbewerbe mit tollen Preisen und weil der Mensch sich gerne unterhalten lässt, gibt es zwischendurch auch noch diverse Cabaret-Einlagen: “Dames, Drawing & Debauchery!”

Where Cabaret meets Artschool.
“Why can’t life drawing be sexy?” asked Molly Crabapple, New York Illustrator and Burlesque dancer herself and founded “Dr. Sketchy’s Anti Art School” in 2005. It’s easily explained: Outrageous models in fabulous outfits can be drawn in a cosy atmosphere, you can win fantastic prizes in funny drawing competitions and because people like to be entertained there are several cabaret numbers. Dames, Drawing and Debauchery!

Special event

Bleu Blanc Rose e.V. presents: (http://www.pornfilmfestivalberlin.de)
Wendy Delorme
Reading, from the novel “Quatrième génération” (The fourth Generation)
In French and German
French-German electro poetry a cappella
23.10., 20:00, WirrWarr, Eintritt 5/3 Euro

Wendy Delorme + KaCoSóniaMore than “just” a novel, Quatrième Génération is a smart, sensitive, hilarious and poetic queer feminist manifesto, published in France by Editions Grasset in 2007. In this book, a young, lucid and ironic female narrator tells us the tale of queer love and four generations of women in her family, all considered “crazy”.

Wendy Delorme is a French writer who likes to tell her sex life, make up sex stories, undress in public and do public sex. She believes in pornography to save the world.

KaCoSónia is the french spokenword artist of Berlin, and as a poet possesses a veritable word pulping machine in her head. With sensuality, verbal dexterity, dark humour, a fiery temperament and an infectious delight in wordplay, this perfom-writer gives us food for thought on our bodies and cities, gender and sexuality, appearance and reality… and leaves no one unmoved. She wrote two books of short stories published in France by Editions Au Diable Vauvert.

Bleu Blanc Rose e.V. is a french-german lesbian-gay-bi-trans organization from Berlin.
